Novel technology for improved nutrient utilization

Olmix Group has recently released a new feed additive, MFeed+, which has demonstrated enhanced nutrient utilization in pigs and poultry. MFeed+ uses a patented process to combine clay layers with the structural components of algae, creating Olmix Exfoliated Algoclay. MFeed+ is a novel tool with the potential to increase nutrient utilization and reduce feed costs.

MFeed+ has proven successful in improving nutrient digestibility in scientific trials (INRA – France) and has demonstrated other improvements in commercial trials in swine, poultry, and aqua species.

By including MFeed+ in diets, producers are not only able to maximize standard nutrient digestibility, but are also potentially able to use less-expensive and less-digestible feed ingredients without sacrificing animal performance.

Olmix Group is a marine biotechnology company founded in 1995 that specializes in clays and macro-algae, and how they can be applied to help livestock producers be more efficient. Based in the heart of Brittany, France, they have designed a state-of-the-art research and manufacturing center to provide the highest quality algae and clay products available, including MFeed+.
